This is the best game because you get all sorts of weapons and vehicles, insane levels, awesome bosses, great music, and sonic heroes graphics!
Rated 2 out of 10 by 1012killer the worst of sonic... yet.
The music is great, but the addition of guns were not necessary, especially if you can't lock on to an enemy, and if your on a dark mission (ex: awaken the ruins) the aliens still attack you (note, same goes for the hero missions).Sure, there are multiple endings, but adding "aliens" to the plot? That makes the game racist! plus, there's the uncooperative camera, the maturity (sega, why not make this game more suitable for kids?!) The controls aren't finished, meaning that shadow's homing attacks can cost you a life. The vehicles aren't needed in this game. The worst part about this game though was the cuss language. Everytime shadow falls of the stage, he would say "d*** it", and everyone else says cuss words as well (refer to the hero mission in lethal highway when the tank gets away). With content like this, sega should have re-rated this game T for teen. I recommend this game to extreme die-hard sonic fans who wan't to waste $10 on a terrible game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by xpyromonkey23x very good game
this is a very good game i just bought it three days ago and i already beat it... as i said this a very good game, its challenging yet fun. there multiple ways to end the game. it has very good controls, a pretty good story line. the only thing i didnt like about the controls is that you always have to skate were ever you go... when i wanted to go to a monster that was like 1 foot away i would go right past him... if the monster was far away its fine. and there is the other thing that is stupid... it is very short(unless you think that you have to have every thing 100% to beat it) i mean it was waaaaay to easy i got it three days ago... also the graphics... they are very good but there not very good... there are only three that are like the best graphics there can b but when the graphics are b4 or after the level they ar good but not great...all together this is a really good game, also there is a lot of action witch i like
Rated 8 out of 10 by Ps2wiz Awesome but could have some improvements
You might take one look at the title and dismiss this game for six year olds, but take a closer look. Shadow has guns, and not some little laser blasters. he has M4's, rocket launchers, pistols, and real guns, although he can get laser blasters. He cusses when he gets injured or dies. there's also alot of heavy metal music. the intro graphics are the best but the gameplay graphics are not so good, to be expected from a ps2. the O button does too many actions and the controls are like, 'whoa!' but you get used to it. the beggining is a little intense, you start out falling through buildings and with laser fire blowing up around you and you have to immediatly start trying to collect coins. after you stop the game gets a little clearer. i also hate when ever i do homing attack(jump, turn into a ball and crash into an enemy), i end up falling over the edges and dying. other then that this game is awesome!!!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by ShadowsOfSilver Shadow the Hedgehog - Good Game, needs more work.
About a year ago I decided I'd get this game. It was worth the 13 days it lasted. Storyline - Shadow the Hedgehog, who has searched for his past long enough, watches the City being destroyed. Not long later, Black Doom shows up and tells Shadow to bring him all seven Chaos Emeralds in exchange to know his past. Shadow decides he knows what he's talking about, so he goes off to get the seven emeralds. Gameplay - Good Gameplay. You go really fast, Shooting everything in your sight, grabbing street sings and whacking people with em', but one law with shooting. No lock-on. A let down for shooter lovers. Controls - A bit tricky at first, but easy once you've been playing for a while. Graphics - A let down. Same graphics as Sonic Heroes, I was expecting major improvements. Length - Alright, I've been playing Sonic the Hedgehog since I was 3. I know how the games work. It took me 13 days to finish, which is good, normally I finish them In 2 or 3 days. Sound - Amazing. I love the music, especially Westopolis, the first stage. Overall - Good game, a bit tricky though.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Zarvanis horrible controlls.
I like Shadow more than any other Sonic character, but this game isn't what i wanted from Sonic's Rival. He moves too fast, its impossible to beat some level, finding ammo for your guns is a bitch, and there are way too many death pit. Plus, shadow says every time he takes damage. And he says not here!" every time u die. Overall, this was an extrememly annyoing game. I liked it somewhat, but it was so hard to controll any thing!! When ever you're driving a vehical, shadow will pick up any random weapons he drives over. So if you have a machien gun with 200 ammo, and u drive over a shitty pistol with 30 ammo well your . The most annyoing thing in the game is that there are over 300 ways to beat the game. And almost all fo them have a different ending. Some times Shadow is evil, some times he's good, some times he's a machien, and other times...idk...i never got through more then 20 endings.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Josh M Another Sonic Classic, Excellent, One of the Best!
This has one of my top favorite sonic games ever. I originally rented this game for game cube when it first came out. I didn't like it so much at first, but now I LOVE IT! I currently own a copy for Play station 2. The only Drawback to this game which is really not a big deal to me at all is that there are over 300 story lines for you to discover, i've never seen that many in my life. Shadow is one of my favorite characters in the sonic world. This game also has great music too. If your wondering if i have had enough experience playing this game to tell you its good, i will be glad to explain. I have beaten almost the ENTIRE GAME. and when i say entire, i mean: All A-Rank, All missions completed, All levels unlocked. I have gotten the All A-Rank, i have unlocked all levels, I have successfully completed Expert Mode as well! The only thing i still lack is unlocking all the story lines which i am slowly working on at the moment. but remember, there are over 300 and i have not even unlocked 50 of them yet! anyway. in conclusion ***** used at game stop is a GREAT DEAL FOR THIS GAME! If you like Sonic, then BUY IT!
Rated 3 out of 10 by email@example.com what a let down!
ok, shadow the hedgehog has always been a fan favorite so it's likely many sonic fans will buy this game. the problem is that this game is a total let down! im not sure what the hell these other people are talking about shadow goin to fast?! my main problem was he was to slow and the game was focused on shootin in random spots hoping to hit an enemy and a little bit of speed thrown in there. the game could have been one of the series best but instead it was just thrown together in a hurry with no hard work done to it at all by sonic team! i loved the story line and the war between G.U.N. and the black aliens but the rest of the story was not so good. my big problem was when you chose a sid, hero/villan, your soldiers still shot at you! and the game does do a good job of makin shadow look bad-ass but they went overboard with the cursing! i'm not sayin the game has horrible language at all, but does he really need to say damn every time he gets hit? and the controls were just awful on top of that!! diehard sonic fans like me will enjoy this game some what but it overall is another failed title in the struggling series.
Rated 8 out of 10 by sonicman shadow steals the spotlight
well looks like shadow has his own game this game is about shadow trying to find the truth about his past cause he lost his memory whil saving the world in sonic adventure 2 battle. any way the black aliens called the black arms fall from the sky out of no where and start destroying the world and black doom comes and tells shadow to collect the 7 chaos emeradls. also in this game you can chose three paths path 1 is the good side which is where you hafe to stop the black arms and find the truth about shadows past path 2 is normal which is where you hafe to reach for the goal and collect the chaos emeradls and path 3 is evil which is where you help the black doom rule the world and you get guns in this game which is awsome and you get to drive which i hate the veichles are so slow i hate them so do i approve of this game yes i do
Rated 1 out of 10 by PokeFreak1337 Possibly one of the worst PS2 games of all time.
This game has quite possibly got to be one of the worst PS2 games of all time.
Not only are the graphics awful, in some cases looking like a late N64/Early DC game, but they run at 10-20 fps. This might not have been as much of an issue had the gameplay not been horrible.
The Homing Attack is broken, leading you off cliffs, the guns autoaim and miss all the time, there is no aiming system, Shadow moves like he's ice skating, and the voices are annoying. The lines are also bad movie quality, as you will hear lines such as "Find the computer room".
The camera is also broken, and will go all over the place.
The much touted choose-your-path system also fails, as some missions are too cheap, while both sides shoot at you. Imagine if in Halo, everyone shot at you.
All in all, please skip this game.
